This power steering kit consists of parts to convert your 48-52 Ford F1 pickup truck straight axle pickup to power steering. This 48-52 Ford F1 power steering kit is a great way to add power steering to a straight axle 48-52 Ford pickup.It provides real power steering, not an assist. It is way more comfortable to drive; Very much like a modern vehicle. The kit comes with a NEW 400 Series power steering box, mounting brackets, hardware, power steering hoses and a pitman arm to fit your stock drag link.
IMPORTANT!!! – Please Note: This steering box has a side plate that bolts to the 48-52 Ford trucks without drilling new holes. The manufacturer recently made a side plate to fit the F1 trucks. Also important: We are not including rag joints/u-joints with the kit. Depending on your steering column setup, you will have to decide what is best to use to connect your steering column to the power steering box. We recommend installing the kit and then deciding how best to connect your steering column. Many people can use a u-joint with a 3/4 – 30 spline for the steering box and an appropriate style on the other side of the u-joint to match their column. The stock OEM steering column has a 3/4″ diameter center shaft. A u-joint to match that is available in 3/4″ round that is pinned to the shaft. Some may have to use two u-joints and DD bar to jog around obstacles like headers. You will need to secure the steering column well at the cab floor. Will NOT work with 3 speed on the column shift linkage. The stock steering column has to be shortened above the steering box and won’t allow enough room to keep the lower shifter rods attached. The kit works fine on floor shifted automatic transmission and manual floor shift applications. Works with almost all power steering pumps. PS pump is not included.
If you decide to use your OEM 48-52 truck steering column, you can add a steering column saver kit (flange bearing and locking collar) to support the center shaft in the outside steering column tube at the floor.
